Sale price$34.50


This book is a story of the ebbs and flows of this Ummah; the challenges, the setbacks, and most importantly, the successes.

It is a story of the accomplishments, attainments and triumphs that propelled the Umma forward. It is a story told through extraordinary figures: the revivers, the Muslims of courage, vigour, and zeal, an elect group who were graced with determination to safeguard the spirit of God’s religion on earth. In other words, they were the saviours of the Islamic spirit.

Drawing on the lives of ten of the most influential personalities of the first seven centuries of Islam, this work offers comfort and much-needed perspective, given the current situation of Muslims around the world. It aims to inspire Muslim youth and to provide role models of intellectual and spiritual excellence, at a time when people are looking for motivation from other sources.
